Us says I have a 8 mm solid hypoechoic thyroid nodule with scattered, small cervical nonspecific lymph nodes. What chance is it malignant & it spread?

Us says I have a 8 mm solid hypoechoic thyroid nodule with scattered, small cervical nonspecific lymph nodes. What chance is it malignant & it spread?

Low risk: Thyroid nodules are very common. The risk of cancer is only 5%. The option now is to proceed wwith an ultrasound guided biopsy or to follow this closely with another ultrasound in a year and biopsy it if it grows on the subsequent ultrasound. ...Read more

Nodule (Definition)

Any growth or deposit in the body or on its surface may be casually termed a nodule until its character is determined by the familiarity of the physician with it or by the results of a biopsy if it is not so obvious. The term is casual ...Read more

Single hypoechoic solid thyroid nodule over 1cm with mild vascularity?

Hyperplastic nodule: This sounds like a hyper plastic nodule. These are usually benign. In the absence of prior studies, this usually is followed up to show it's stable nature. If it changes or grows it would need a biopsy. Nonetheless would suggest an in depth discussion with your doctor ...Read more

3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?

3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?

Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read more

1 CM hypoechoic solid and vascular thyroid nodule found and confirmed on us. Biopsy scheduled for january. How concerned should I be?

1 CM hypoechoic solid and vascular thyroid nodule found and confirmed on us. Biopsy scheduled for january. How concerned should I be?

Up to you.: Sounds like it could be a cancer. But there is little benefit to worrying about things that might happen as there is also a chance that they might not happen. The biopsy will give you an answer. There is no reason to do a biopsy more quickly than what is scheduled. Until then live your life as you would normally. ...Read more

12mm slightly complex THYROID nodule (R) + 10x6x5mm hypoechoic nodule (R). Impression: largest predominantly solid appearing nodule is 10mm. GET FNA?

12mm slightly complex THYROID nodule (R) + 10x6x5mm hypoechoic nodule (R). Impression: largest predominantly solid appearing nodule is 10mm. GET FNA?

FNA: The 12 mm nodule and the 10 mm nodule should both get an FNA. I'd advise doing the FNAs with thyroid cancer gene panel testing. Most are benign, so please don't be concerned until and unless you get bad results from the FNAs. Good luck! ...Read more

3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule, possible?

3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule, possible?

Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. Http://www. Mayoclinic.

Talk to YOUR MD: You clearly have a thyroid problem, and this needs to be discussed in context of the bigger clinical picture. If you have had FNA done, you have a doc following you. See them and ask what this means in your case and what should be done next. Lab results never occur in isolation. They occur in people, and the whole person has to be considered when making a diagnosis and treatment plan. Best wishes! ...Read more

What is a hypoechoic thyroid nodule exactly?

What is a hypoechoic thyroid nodule exactly?

Fewer echoes on US: Hypoechoic describes the appearance of a nodule on ultrasound (us). It refers to a nodule that reflects back fewer sound waves compared to the normal thyroid tissue around it. While most thyroid cancers are hypoechoic, most hypoechoic nodules are not cancers. But a hypoechoic nodule may have a slightly higher risk of being a cancer than other nodules. ...Read more

Can a solid thyroid nodule shrink in size on its own?

Yes: Yes, it can shrink. Most solid nodules are adenomas and are benign. If it shrinks that is a good sign...It is. Likely benign.
It is the ones that get larger or are large when they are first found that need closer assessment. In this case a biopsy may be needed to assess more closely.
Btw thyroid nodules are pretty common. ...Read more

Wouldn't a 1.1x1c.M. Solid thyroid nodule already be growing? It couldn't have started at that size could it?

Wouldn't a 1.1x1c.M. Solid thyroid nodule already be growing? It couldn't have started at that size could it?

Thyroid nodule: Of course the nodule starts from small abnormal cells to large mass. Thyroid nodule is either not noticed or checked by patient. It can be incidental finding on us or ct for neck for other reasons. Important thing is to take care of it. See endocrinologist. Pls read http:// doctorrajput. Com thanks. ...Read more

Is a solid thyroid nodule considered hot or cold? I have a solid nodule but did not specify if it was hot or cold

Thyroid scan: You can't tell if a nodule is hot or cold for sure on a thyroid ultrasound. A test called thyroid uptake and scan is what's needed to determine if a nodule is hot or cold. ...Read more

My husband has been diagnosed with thyroid nodules which are solid and have micro calcifications. What does this mean?

My husband has been diagnosed with thyroid nodules which are solid and have micro calcifications. What does this mean?

Needs a biopsy: The most common form of thyroid cancer (papillary) has certain features on us that let us know if a nodule is worrisome. Microcalcifications is one of them. He should have a biopsy. Although thyroid ca is generally curable, it is a bit more serious in males than females and thus this should be followed up with a u/s guided - needle biopsy by an experienced physician. ...Read more
